Police have arrested two people suspected of breaking into cabins and trailers in McClure.

Barriere RCMP said an alert resident called police after seeing two suspicious people entering a rural property on foot. Police dog Kody was able to track a man and woman believed responsible. 

"While actively tracking the man and woman, police observed evidence along the way to suggest that the suspects were breaking into cabins and trailers in the area," said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson for the B.C. RCMP in the Southeast District.

A 32-year-old Kamloops man was arrested and held in custody because of outstanding warrants from the North Okanagan. A 27-year-old Barriere woman was arrested and released for a future court date. 

Police said they also seized break-in tools, brass knuckles and bear spray.
